To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answers by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 23 July (HL17260, HL17263, and HL17264) about monitoring applications to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) from looked-after children and care leavers, what plans they have to publish the number of EUSS applications received from local authorities on behalf of children in their care.
Answer (Baroness Williams of Trafford)
The third official statistics – ‘EU Settlement Scheme Statistics, June 2019’ – on the operation of the scheme were published on 18 July 2019, including applications received by nationality and in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, along with applications concluded by outcome. These can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/eu-settlement-scheme-statistics-june-2019
The Home Office is committed to publishing more detailed quarterly statistics on the EU Settlement Scheme, alongside our Immigration Statistics, from August 2019. Home Office statisticians and officials are currently considering the content and will take into account the views of statistics users.
